    Wow, just, wow!!!! Those are huge insects, and that land form is incredible! The hatching video was quite possibly one of the strangest things I've ever seen.

    I'd love to have those in my front yard if I lived on Howe Island!

    Wow! I bet this will be the next repti pet within the coming years
    Not legally anyway, ALL Phasmids (stick & leaf insects) and their eggs are banned from any kind of importation to the US unless you have a permit to import invasive insect species and it's not easy to score a permit for that! LOL

    There are native Phasmid species in many US states and Canadian provinces, just need to look at bramble bushes, oaks and maples for the most part as these are their kinds of food plants.

    Most phasmids breed prolifically in captivity. These shouldn't be much different than the other more common species as long as the preferred food plants are provided. Most will eat most kinds of bramble, holly and, ivy although there are a few that prefer ferns, lilac, bay or, olive.
